ALWAYS REMEMBER...MOST INFORMATION FOUND ON THE INTERNET IS SOMEONE'S OR SOME GROUP'S OPINION...NOT FACT. EVERYTHING (EVERYTHING) SHOULD BE TAKEN WITH A BLOCK (NOT A GRAIN, A BLOCK) OF SALT! This applies equally to conventional and holistic therapies!

Internet Research: Gathering information Efficiently and Wisely. The medical care we can provide animals and ourselves has improved immeasurably because of the Internet. But it's important to remember, anyone can publish a Web site and anyone can say just about anything they like. Here are some hints to retrieve quality information on pet health care while immediately discarding the bad.

  • What is Holistic Veterinary Medicine? From the pages of the American Holistic Veterinary Association.
  • Find other holistic veterinarians around the country who are members of the American Holistic Veterinary Association.
  • Find a Veterinary AcupuncturistFind an IVAS certified veterinarian
  • Gold Bead Implant Directory Gold bead implants are an extension of an acupuncture procedure. They provide acupuncture and long term stimulation of acupuncture points on a permanent basis. The gold beads which are smaller in diameter than 1/16'' are implanted at various sites either subcutaneously or in the muscle bellies. These sites of implantation are acupuncture points and in some cases reactive points which merit the implant. 
  • Find veterinarians certified by The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.  Founded in 1995, the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy is comprised of veterinarians who share the common desire to restore true health to their patients through the use of homeopathic treatment. Members of the Academy are dedicated to understanding and preserving the principles of Classical Homeopathy.

Veterinarians providing this information have also listed various holistic products that may help with each condition and are available for purchase from this site.

  • Quack watch - This is an interesting site that hopefully is also monitors conventional medicine.
  • SkeptVet is a site that questions the validity of alternative medicine while overlooking the short comings of 'conventional' veterinary medicine.

Hopefully in the future they can add to their usefulness by evaluating conventional medicine also so you can make a real informed decision.

Parasite Control

  • Fleabuster system for flea control that kills fleas physically rather than with conventional or herbal chemicals.

Vaccination issues

  • UC Davis Vaccination Protocol Holistically it is more important to prevent than to treat. Vaccinations started as a shamanistic practice shunned by main stream medicine. The practice has now come full cirlce to be shunned by the holistic community. UC Davis is a highly respected School of Veterinary Medicine. Most Vet Schools and major veterinary associations are finally following the lead of pioneers such as Jean Dodd DVM, Ron Schlutz PhD and others, including the holistic veterinary community, in calling for a reduction in the number of vaccinations and recommendations against annual boosters. These recommendations are not "chiseled in stone" and should be discussed with your veterinarian. There is at least one vaccine manufacturer now producing vaccines scientifically proven to last multiple years. Ask your veterinarian.  Nosodes that are touted on many holistic sites are utterly worthless against the serious life threathning diseases that affect our pets. ASK MEContact 


Other issues

  • Natural Veterinary Dental Care Pet owners know their four-legged best friends have teeth, but usually do little to keep them healthy. As the mouth is the entrance point of food into the body, it's important to keep your pet's teeth and gums clean and strong. Examining the teeth monthly is helpful. Most dogs and cats are happy to let their owners peek inside the mouth to look at the teeth. Home dental care can be the best gift you can give your pet.
